Fort Tatham Campground, Sylva, North Carolina

Day 1360

     Well, the china virus has finally effected us. No, we don’t have it. Our plan was to leave North Carolina and proceed to Maine. Maine’s border is closed to anyone traveling through New York State. Not just New York City, but the whole state.

     When we booked our campsite at Moonshine RV Campground, we booked through the July 4th holiday, and planned to move north. By the time we tried booking in Maine, and New York, the campground here had completely booked up through September. We spend two days boon-docking in the middle of the woods, with no facilities (water, electric, sewer), which was fine with me, we can be independent for up to 7 days.

     We found our current campground had openings. It was only 21 miles from Moonshine campground. Actually, we are on another creek (there are dozens of them in the mountains). This is the view from our side window. Tough life, huh?

     Although it is called Fort Tatham Campground, there is, and never was, a Fort Tatham. Sun Resorts like to name their campgrounds “fort”. 

     We are on the other side of the city of Sylva, which we have already talked about (Day 1348still in the mountains.

Technical Stuff:

  1. I’m living vicariously through you two.
    Don’t overlook Iowa. 99 counties and each with they’re own little festivals and idiosyncrasies.

  2. I know talk is cheap and it sucks that you can’t go to Maine, but i would head to the upper mid west where there is minimal virus and the weather is beautiful this time of year. Northern MI to Norther MN (Upper Peninsula MI along US 2 through Duluth along Lake Superior and then into ND, SD and Montana. I could spend a whole summer in that region. Have fun!
